Focus Dab Radio....

12 posts in this topic

hi, i recently bought a 58 plate 2l zetec focus and was wondering how hard it is to swap the standard radio for the sony dab unit, just had a quote off ford of £650 just for the head unit which is obscene. iv seen a few on ebay but they have a silver rectangle around the radio which wont fit into the focus dash. any info?

thanks

removal info

this is a removal guide

as for the radio is it double din fitment because that is the standard for these models for single din use you can buy a fascia plate which converts it

it is a double din radio as its the ford/sony cd dab unit. but i think its out of a mondeo or kuga and has a silver trim making the radio a rectangle where as the focus dash is a sort of rounded trapezium thing lol.

this is my radio shape

it is a darker silver, i couldn't find any others but it might be worth asking if they stock any different colours. And as for your dab radio im pretty sure you will need a dab ready digital antenna for it but there relatively cheap try ebay.

reception depends on where you are really and what radio it is. i use a pure one and its pretty good to say all my driving is in the pennines which is about as technologically backward as you can get lol
